“Just to say a huge thank you for all your braveness and efficiency in moving our bees to their new home!”

You may not know, but Abacus Construction has many years of experience and expertise in non-lethal bee removal. We’ve recently launched a new website Abacus Beekeeper Bee Removal, which explains what we do and how to contact us if you have a bee problem.

We’ve received some feedback from a reject project we did for Kate and Nick. Here are their comments:-

Just to say a huge thank you for all your braveness and efficiency in moving our bees to their new home!
We hope the bees are all well and have settled down a bit! And live happily ever after!
Best wishes

Kate and Nick Wilson

If you have a bee swarm that needs attention, you can be sure that we will remove the bees safely and relocate them in a new hive where they can continue to thrive peacefully. And, whenever we do building work that involves a situation where bees could be disturbed, we have the expertise and knowledge to deal with the bees ourselves, as soon as the problem appears!

Porcelain Slabs

We offer a wide range of external porcelain slabs suitable for projects such as patios, terraces and landscaping projects. You can choose from a natural looking stone or cement effect, to wood effect paving.

Benefits of using porcelain slabs

Traditional external materials such as natural stone, concrete slabs or wooden decking require regular cleaning and sealing, and are easily damaged by the elements. Porcelain paving slabs are made from strong vitrified material, which is resistant to all weathers including frost and fading in the sun. The non-porous material also resists moss and mould growth on the surface.

Here are some photos of the types of porcelain slabs we can supply:-
